The world of classical music is so vast, even experts like Wilmington Symphony Orchestra conductor Steven Errante stumble upon new pieces all the time. One piece that recently came into Errante's purview is by Cuban composer, conductor, and guitarist, Leo Brouwer (born in 1939 in Havana). The piece is Brouwer's Concerto #3, Elegiaco. Julian Bream (for whom the piece was written) premiered the piece in London in 1986. Errante invited guitarist Justin Hoke to join WSO to perform this piece for the Season Finale concert on Saturday, April 22nd at the Wilson Center. The concert begins at 7:30 and includes Smetena's Moldau and Shostakovich's The Gadfly as well.
